Ah Venice – you just can’t take a bad photo! That’s probably why tourists flock there all year round of a taste of canal life. When you’re battling the crowds in St. Mark’s Square, it can be hard to imagine a peaceful moment alone to appreciate its splendour – but have no fear, there is a local side to Venice and it’s awesome. Even if you only have 24 hours to spend cruising the narrow streets, you can get a taste of local life. It’s a shopper’s dream and foodie heaven!
